Frida Kahlo is one of the most recognisable faces in the history of art. This yarn is inspired by one of her many self-portraits, The Frame. Amazing pinks, striking greens, intense blues and rich yellows work their way through this vividly colourful yarn to create a beautiful combination reminiscent of the palette of the famous feminist.
Alpaca Merino Aran is a beautifully soft blend with 50% of the finest Peruvian baby alpaca and 50% merino wool. Baby Alpaca is one of the most luxurious fibres in the world and is incredibly warm, lightweight and strong. It has hypoallergenic properties as it doesn't contain lanolin, so it's safe to wear if you have skin allergies. Alpaca is said to be three times warmer than sheep’s wool as the fibers have excellent insulation properties whilst remaining light and breathable. This is a 2 ply construction of yarn and has a loose twist which gives a bouncy textured finish. This is a non-superwash yarn so is 100% natural and untreated. This yarn is recommended for hats, shawls and mitts.
